Joey Convento: Bringing Play to Work

Joey is the emcee and event producer for many of our events on campus including the Block Party, Black & White Gala, and various cultural celebrations. His goal is to create work-life balance for UCSF employees by providing opportunities to get out of the office or lab and embrace their creative spirit.

Joey has been with UCSF for almost two decades. He is a San Francisco native, and thrives on the energy, cultural diversity, and creativity that San Francisco has to offer. 

We are driven by the idea that when the best research, the best education and the best patient care converge, great breakthroughs are achieved. We pursue this excellence through our people. We are all UCSF, united by a driving passion to solve the most challenging health issues of our time and to redefine what's possible. Join the conversation at
